March For Meals is a nationwide promotion sponsored by Meals on Wheels of America.
The goal is to raise awareness for Meals on Wheels programs and how they combat the growing concern of hunger in our communities.
Ken-Ton Meals On Wheels celebrated March for Meals 2019 with:
- A celebration brunch on Sunday the 3rd of March at Banchetti’s by Rizzo on North French.
- National Pi Day with Sweet Beginnings on Thursday, March 14. Order a pie at either Sweet Beginnings (3759 Delaware Avenue) or Ken-Ton Meals on Wheels using the Pi Day order from and $3.14 from each pie will be given to KTMOW.
- Bring a Friend Week will also be March 11-15th. We are asking each volunteer to bring a friend along when they deliver meals that week so they can see what we are all about and hopefully join the Ken-Ton Meals on Wheels Family. If you are interested in taking a test drive with us that week (even if you don’t have a friend currently volunteering), call us at 874-3595 or complete the volunteer application on our website now. The application can be found by going to the Volunteer tab on the home page, click to see the items underneath that tab and going to Volunteer Application.
